If you really want it done correctly, your car will need to visit an alignment shop. And with the Sportlines, you'll want to make sure to get a good set of c/c plates (some here have said the three bolt ones are crap so you might look into a four bolt design, Steeda and Max Motorsports both offer those, there may be others I'm not thinking of) and a bumpsteer kit (fancy name for tie-rod ends). Without those parts, it's my understanding that a proper alignment is near impossible. I've heard an alignment can be done with a tape measure, but that just sounds like an "eyeball" way of doing it. An alignment rack will get your car dialed in so you have no problems whatsoever.

To do the job RIGHT you need:

Aftermarket shocks/struts (i would get them at foxbody length)
caster camber plates
bump steer kit

Sprotlines are some of the lowest springs you can buy.
